How and when can I register for transversal-training?Enrolment via the online registration form:
- at the beginning of the academic year for the early-semester courses ;
- till the end of December for the second-semester courses.
First come, first served. If a training is no longer appearing on the list, it is complete. You can register on the reserve list by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
When will I receive my certificate of attendance?
Attendance confirmations are sent out by the end of each semester:
- no later than January 15th of the following year for trainings attended from October to December,
- no later than June 15th for training sessions attended from January to June (so that you have time enough to fill in your data in myULiège before your annual evaluation).
It is imperative to complete the evaluation form that is sent to you after each training. This form is automatically closed one week after the training session’s date.
How many credits can I get per training?
In general terms, you will earn one credit for each day of training. Shorter trainings generally do not refer to any credits. However, be aware that your doctoral college may eventually grant you additional credits for a set of activities that you have agreed upon with your PhD supervisor and -committee.
Please keep in mind that the content of the doctoral training is much more important than the number of credits you’ll be granted after enrolment, especially since the total of earned credits does no longer appear on your degree/ study record. In MyULiège, however, credit counting is still in force to allow your doctoral college to be sure that you have followed a full PhD programme and collected at least 60 credits
How do I know if my registration has been taken into account?
You will receive an email as soon as you have completed the registration form. Consider that you are enrolled in the courses as soon as you register and please block the date(s) in your diary. A notification mail that contains practical information about the training will be sent to you approximately two weeks before the training. If you are on the reserve list, you will also be notified.
I enrolled in a training and I have an impediment?
Out of respect for our work, the trainers’ time and involvement and the other participants, we ask you to inform us about any impediment as soon as possible by mail (doc-training@ULiège.be), at least 24h in advance. By doing so, we will be able to propose your place to another researcher. There are generally many participants put on the reserve list. Please keep in mind that two non-justified absences will lead to the invalidation of subsequent registration.
I planned to participate in a training course, but could not make it nor withdraw?
Even if our trainings are free of charge, inviting expert trainers involves a significant financial load. Two non-excused absences will result in the invalidation of your subsequent registration.
Please note that your training participation record (including justified/ non justified absences) is sent to your doctoral college at the end of the academic year and is added to your file.
In which language are the trainings given?
